Storyline

Rogues Jelly Knight, Scapa Flood, and Lennie the Dip leave prison expecting boss The Duke to have their stash ready to share out. Instead, Duke's girl Sara gives them the news Duke is dead and the money gone on nursing care. They soon discover that Duke is actually running Hope Springs Nature Clinic with the help of most of the local villains. Very strange - and the nearby army camp and Sara's encouragement of Lieutenant Vine would seem to be no coincidence either. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Starts off well but goes downhill rapidly
26 January 2020 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Despite a good cast this film rapidly exhaust it's welcpme.You just wonder what it would have been like if Peter Sellers had taken the lead role.Unfortunately Anton Rodgers just isn't good enough.Charlotte Rampling features at the beginning of her long career.Ian Bannen is only moderately amusing as her officer lover.The Boultings were starting to loose their touch by this time.
